Brewed by:
Brooklyn Brewery
New York, United States

Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Here in Brooklyn we’ve combined European malt and hops, Belgian dark sugar, and raw wildflower honey from a New York family farm to create Brooklyn Local 2. Our special Belgian yeast adds hints of spice to the dark fruit, caramel, and chocolate flavors. After 100% bottle re-fermentation, the beer reveals a marvelous dry complexity, enjoyable by itself or at the dinner table.

Beer color is a dark brown, with a hint of rust. Produced a big 3 finger, beige head.

Aroma is of light citrus, and a woodsy/leather like smell.

Taste was similar, but with a little hop presence, and a noticeable, but not overwhelming alcohol after taste. High carbonation, and light-medium body.

Tasty, would buy again.

Appearance: pours a reddish brown with goodly sized head that dissipates slowly. Leaves behind nice amount of lacing.

Smell: Slight aroma, hints of tropical fruits.

Taste: Very sweet, more tropical fruits and dark chocolate.

Mouthfeel: A bit of a heavy mouthfeel with a lot of carbonation.

Overall: I love malt forward (sweet) beers, so this one is a winner to me!
